This brick church replaced the original Tabernacle Baptist Church which was a wooden frame structure located on the corner of Main Street and Jackson Street. The cornerstone was laid in 1907 in the same location as that original building. A new church was built on a corner directly across the street from this one and was dedicated in 1960. The building pictured on this postcard was torn down in 1998.
